New Projects

winner!
weimar!
wonderful!

we are happy that we have won the competition for the corporate design bauhaus museum weimar.  

 

the communicational concept is all about the materiality and the visual understanding of things that represent the bauhaus. the corporate design focuses on objects and their creators and on other protagonists as well. the viewer is not addressed in an emotional way but still on an easy accessible level of the human perception. images and typography have their own power: the illustrations communicate the handicraft aspect that was highly renowned during the bauhaus era. 

starry, starry night

we paint the ceiling blue and grey... our design for the welcome center stuttgart communicates the variety of the region, the city and the different nations of the new citizens.

ado goldkante redesign

how do you give a grand old brand a brand new look, a new presence in the marketplace? or maybe this is the wrong question to ask? is »new« the wrong angle? possibly, because the brand isn’t new – it already exists. so what can it be then? renewed? refreshed? radically renovated? the brand’s new owner wanted none of this. fortunately – because many »rejuvenated« brands merely reveal the cluelessness with which concepts like »fresh«, »new« and »modern« are used and why they are now (paradoxically) so faded and jaded. 

 

for home textiles producer ado we chose a different path. the brand redesign follows objective, technical criteria in a judicious and scrupulous manner. solving formal problem areas was our priority.

adidas gym

herbert hainer, ceo of the adidas ag as well as supervisory board chairman of the fc bayern munich ag, is obviously fond of figures. not only the black, but also colourful ones, as clearly evident on this picture. we will explain them later. for now, together with all parties involved, we are celebrating the opening of the adidas gym we designed the interior and spacial graphics for together with zieglerbürg.

woman, man 

 

a woman and a man. standing calm and still, wearing a knee-length dress and shorts. no specific fashion is discernible. these two figures have fallen out of time. yet they aren’t hermaphrodites – who’ve always missed out when the sexual categories are defined: we can see from the two figures that the man is probably a boy, the woman probably a girl. it’s not just that they’re almost exactly the same height: the female figure’s undeveloped chest, the shorts – which tend to be the preserve of the young – are sympathetic references to the un-sexual. a shared naïveté – or perhaps rather a shared innocence – overlays the stark division of the sexes. the form fulfils its function and reminds us of childhood. the figures aid wayfinding and tell us a tale of rediscovering a lost age. 

 

picture language 

 

someone who is looking for the toilet comes to a door. he sees what we might call a humanoid figure. he sees a person. the body descends vertically from broad shoulders, the legs stand parallel with a small gap between them. aha, the viewer says to himself, this is the place for men. yet if the figure has a waist and wears a skirt-like garment it is equally clear – at least in the western world – that we have reached the ladies’ toilet. the fact that this information is understood globally is a tremendous cultural achievement – its importance cannot be overestimated. it is the translation of instructions, place descriptions or complex emotional states into an internationally comprehensible language – basically the invention of an autonomous picture-based language that functions across all national boundaries. together, scientist otto neurath and graphic designer gerd arntz laid the foundations for the international visualisation system we use today, which helps us communicate various important matters quickly and straightforwardly without using writing and words. smileys, emojis and emoticons are another wonderful example of this. here you can see the beauty of gerd arntz’s original drawings: woman, man. smile.

cotton candy typeface 

 

oh how beautiful is the fun fair! loud and annoying, confusingly complex and everyone loves cotton candy and roasted almonds. i rather like the typography: awkward, weird and powerful. bubi slush ist ok. would be a funny name for a typeface: bubi slush bold ...

die gendergerechte ausstattung des büros ist selbstverständlich. alle haben den gleichen stuhl, tisch und arbeitsleuchte. wir benutzen die gleiche toilette und den gleichen drucker. bisher war nur das verhältnis frauen zu männer ungleich. auf wunsch der – mehrheitlich weiblichen – beschäftigten wurde dieses verhältnis nun zu gunsten der männlichen verschoben. seit montag sind zwei neue kollegen im büro, deren anwesenheit eine mitarbeiterin mit glänzenden augen dergestalt kommentierte, dass es nun im büro nach »mann« röche.
